Today, Councilman Don Bryant applauded the efforts of Mansfield Police Chief, Ken Coontz on the reduction of crime for the beginning of the 2015 year.
“Chief Coontz and the Department are working around the clock to protect the people of Mansfield and on a limited budget. They’re doing a fine job.”
“As Chairman of the Mansfield Public Safety Committee; my goal is to help keep Mansfielders safe. Building a solid relationship with the Department and with the community is very important in this aspect. My role specifically works through the development and support of policies that promote our local and regional security and by advocating for programs that work to make Mansfield a safer and overall, a more comfortable place to live and work. It certainly helps to have a Police Department that cares.” Bryant stated.
The 1st quarter report accounted for the first three months of 2015 and was released by the Mansfield Police Department on Wednesday, April 15th. The total calls for service and crime statistics during the three month quarter revealed a 9.4% reduction of crime in comparison to the 2014 1st quarter report.
The number of criminal assaults, larcenies and auto thefts; all decreased compared to 1st quarter reports from the previous 2014 year.
